Girls’ Education South Sudan (GESS) is an inclusive programme that will transform the lives of a generation of children in South Sudan – especially girls and those in the margins of society– through education.

In 2018 there were 156,085 girls enrolled in Primary 1 (P1) but only 5,272 in Secondary 4 (S4). GESS is on a mission to change that. Here's how:
